Sookie Stackhouse series

B
Deadlocked

One of the great things about paranormal romance series is that revisiting that world and those characters feels almost like a homecoming. I've spent so much time in Bon Temps over the years, been with Sookie through calm and danger (mostly danger) so often, reading a new novel is like being with go ...

A
Dead Until Dark

Although I’ve heard the Sookie Stackhouse series praised for years, I was reluctant to dive in. I didn’t think I’d be interested in an open ended series with the possibility of more than one romantic hero. I want to read romance with just a side dish of adventure and I relish those solidly wra ...

Dead in the Family

I have been reading the Southern Vampire series for many years now. These aren't books I rubber stamp; while the first few were solid As for me, as the books have gotten more complex my enjoyment has become less enthusiastic. The tangle of personal relationships Sookie is in often slows down the act ...

Dead and Gone

Note: This review contains series spoilers. This one is tough to write because…well, gee, because I just can’t tell you much of anything about the plot without spoiling the book for Sookie readers – something I really, really don’t want to do. For those new to the party, my advice is t ...

From Dead to Worse

In the interests of full disclosure, I'm a fan of Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries, and with the exception of the previous installment, I've enjoyed it in its entirety. After the disappointment of All Together Dead, though, I wasn't sure if Harris had jumped the shark, or as the kids say ...

All Together Dead

The seventh book in Harris’s Southern Vampire Mysteries series, All Together Dead, wasn’t altogether great. The book started off with human telepath Sookie Stackhouse attending a meeting of vampires. It wasn’t the most thrilling way to start a book, especially one of Harris’, because those m ...

Definitely Dead

While my affection for Sookie Stackhouse remains firm, my affection for the Sookie Stackhouse series just might be waning. Frankly, when an author publishes roughly one book a year in a beloved series, I don’t think it’s too much to expect for there to be some kind of major moves forward for ...

Dead as a Doornail

Dead as a Doornail is book five in the Southern Vampire series told in the first-person by telepathic small-town Louisiana bar waitress Sookie Stackhouse. I've enjoyed all the books in this series and am happy to report that Dead as a Doornail is a worthy follow-up to the last in the series, Dead to ...

Dead to the World

Who said vampires can't be fun? Charlaine Harris clearly doesn't buy it as she proves once again in the latest entry in her delightful Sookie Stackhouse series. Since bad boys have always held immense appeal for me, fans of the series won't be surprised that I've always had a major Jones for Eric ...

Living Dead in Dallas

Sookie Stackhouse is back. Those of you who have been waiting anxiously for the sequel to Dead Until Dark will be pleased to know that Living Dead in Dallas is another cleverly unique story with the same high quality writing as Harris's first Southern Vampire novel. Sookie, for all that she enjoy ...
